Flash Visual Evoked Potentials in Preterm Infants

Objective: To describe the development of flash visual evoked potentials (FVEPs) in preterm infants from 1 to 18 months and to determine if the maturation of FVEPs is similar to that of term infants. Design: Longitudinal follow-up study. Participants: Twenty very low birth weight (VLBW) preterm infants, 42 low birth weight (LBW) preterm infants, and 41 term infants underwent FVEP recordings and neurodevelopmental examinations at 1, 3, 6, 9, 12, and 18 months of corrected and chronological ages. Methods: The FVEP recordings were carried out with the VikingQuest-IV neuroelectrophysiological device (Read more...)
